Nikon Speedlight SB-300 first thoughts and links

A entry level flash for those people that doesn't want to use something besides the flash that is on the camera. It is the Nikon Speedlight SB-300 that were introduced today. It got a bit more flexibility in how the flash head can turn than the SB-400, so it can be used to bounce on the celling in the room instead of just shooting the light straight out like the on board flash does and the Nikon Speedlight SB-400 does. You can' turn the flash to either sides as you can with the bigger flash models, which would have been a great feature. That would have made the flash a home run and it is strange that it doesn't have that feature. A small flash that can turn in any direction like the bigger flash would have been a great sales hit as sometime size and weight does have an effect on the equipment you pack.

It has almost the same specification as the Nikon Speedlight SB-400, which only advantage is that it has a little bit more of flash power than the SB-300, but it is very little. At the same price level you should really go for the new Nikon Speedlight SB-300 as it has the possiblity to bounce the light of the celling and it is also smaller and lighter.
To keep up with what comes of articles about the new lens. Keep and eye out at it page on Nikon Index, where I will update the pages as I find more information.
